The Vancouver Heritage Foundation (VHF) is holding a Heritage House Tour, which is taking place on Tuesday, May 31st and Thursday June 2nd. During this event, VHF will offer two special online events that will highlight six remarkable heritage homes. Participants will enjoy exclusive virtual tours inside heritage spaces from the 1910s to the 1980s and hear about the engaging stories behind them. The tour explores history and diverse architecture as well as how historic homes can be updated for modern living.
This year, they will visit a Mission Revival building in Hastings-Sunrise that has been converted to residential townhouses; a 1928 award-winning Tudor-Revival style cottage; a grand Edwardian commercial building; a 1912 Craftsman home in Kitsilano lovingly restored by its current owner; an early passive solar home in Dunbar Southlands; and a Dutch Colonial Revival home in Marpole that has been transformed into a community museum. VHS will showcase the original interior features, craftsmanship,
and unique designs, and explore the history and heritage significance of each of these special properties.
All ticket holders receive EXCLUSIVE access to VHS curated video tours, interior and exterior photography, and two live virtual presentations from heritage professionals and building owners who will dive deeper into the history of the properties and answer audience questions.
The Heritage House Tour is VHF’s largest event of the year and is also an important fundraising event for VHF, helping to support educational programs and innovative projects throughout the year.
